ROTARY CLUB OF GAWLER lnc.
IF there's a spot of magic in the air, it's
no random happenstance.
The world's most beloved wizard twins
are flying -- by plane rather than broom
this time -- into Adelaide this month for
the Supanova Pop Culture Expo.
Harry Potter actors Oliver and James
Phelps, famous for playing George and
Fred Weasley, will apparate into the
Adelaide Showground alongside a line-up
of pop culture icons.
For Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) it
will also be a chance to further explore
South Australia, following his visit to
Adelaide last Christmas, and catch up with
fellow actor Rupert Young, who plays Sir
Leon in BBC's fantasy drama Merlin.
"We actually met on one of the
Supanovas from last year and we actually
play in the same cricket team now back in
England," Oliver said.
The Phelps twins are no strangers to
pop culture conventions, having previously
delighted thousands of fans during their
appearances at both Australian and
At 14, the brothers quickly carved a
name for themselves in the press and a place
in the hearts of Harry Potter fangirls and
fanboys across the world, after being cast as
the iconic ginger-haired pranksters in the
Growing up in Sutton Coldfield, a
town near Birmingham, the twins would
occasionally switch to confuse their teachers
at school, but Oliver solemnly swears they
never swapped identities while filming.
"We did on, maybe, one of the rehearsals
for the first film but never for actual
filming," he said.
"The main thing I always think about is
the amount of people who are involved in a
shoot day on a film like that; you're talking
hundreds of people, and if you're the reason
that they've got to come and work late or
work on a Saturday, you're not going to be
However, the 28-year-old admitted there
was plenty of other mischief managed on
"There was normally the three of us who
would do it, there would be James, myself
and Rupert Grint," he said.
"We'd always have a laugh with a few
Oliver said one of the more memorable
pranks was played on a trainee make-up girl
"I can't remember what she did now, but
it was something to trigger it," he said.
"I knew she was going on a holiday a
couple of days later...and I knew where
she was going...so I got her registration
plate and about a couple of weeks later we
basically called her, pretending to be from
the car parking company, saying that she
owed 1000 pounds or something like that.
"I said to her at the time, if you want to
complain about it, please send an email...
and I spelled out my name...o-l-i-v-e-r p-h-
e-l-p-s at gotyou.com
"She's like, okay, fine, and I said, 'do you
want to read that back to me' and it was
really only the split second after that it sank
Between filming and on-set pranks,
Oliver said there were many life-long
friendships formed on set.
Only two weeks ago he caught up with
on-screen brother Rupert Grint (Ron
Weasley), who is currently starring in It's
Only A Play on Broadway.
"I was in Texas about two weeks ago, on
the way back I went to New York to catch
up with a few friends and I caught up with
Rupert as well and saw his play out there,
which has just opened on Broadway, which
was great to see," he said.
Since Harry Potter, the Phelps twins have
pursued individual projects but reunited to
film Own Worst Enemy.
Oliver, who plays Constable Stroyde in
the film, said it was good fun playing a
At least until the real police showed up
"We were filming in a cul-de-sac and they
told everyone they were filming a show, so
don't worry about the police car being there.
"Except the next-door neighbour who
wasn't in at the time and when we started
filming, my character starts beating a guy
up as if he was resisting arrest and the guy
reported it to the police.
"He's called the police saying, 'look, one
of your people is being really overhanded
with my neighbour' and all of a sudden
before we know it, the real police are
turning up on the driveway and I'm there
dressed as a policeman, in a police car.
"Luckily, they saw the cameras and put
two and two together."
Own Worst Enemy is expected to hit
cinemas in the coming months.
In the meantime, catch the Phelps
twins at the Adelaide Showground for
the Supanova Pop Culture Expo from
November 21 to 23.
